Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of August 16th

It's that time again!  Time to plan out the menu for the week, check the pantry and freezer, and make my shopping list for the week.

Last week, I only followed half of my menu plan.  Out of the 4 meals listed, only 2 were served.  One of those meals was Swedish Meatballs

When I planned last week's menu, I didn't realize that we had a lot of leftovers in the fridge from the week before.  There isn't any room in the freezer right now, so rather than waste the leftovers we incorporated them into the menu plan.  And I'm glad we did.

The leftovers helped a lot, since I really haven't been in the mood to cook lately.  I don't know if it's the weather or the lack of sleep that I've been dealing with that is affecting my feelings about cooking lately.  Probably a combination of both. 

Here's the plan for this week: 
  • scrambled eggs with spinach, onions and potatoes, Canadian bacon, toast
  • crock pot ravioli, garlic bread, salad
  • meatloaf, vegetable risotto, salad
  • quick chicken enchiladas, refried beans, rice 
There should be plenty of leftovers from these meals to fill in the remainder of the week. 

I don't usually include breakfast or lunch in my menu planning since we all eat something different for those meals.  If you are interested in finding out what I eat for those meals while I'm dieting,  I posted some suggestions on my weight loss post: I'm Going to Lose It!
